3 Cost Effective Ways to Solve Metro Manila's Traffic Problem

Image
The Facebook page of ANC 24/7 is asking for its reader's suggestion on how to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem.


This got me thinking, "what is the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem?" It's easy to make suggestions, what's hard is the implementation and the cost of implementation. So what is the the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem and the most cost effective solution?

Punitive Fines
First of all, any implementation will definitely cost money, a lot of money. The cause of the traffic mess is the people themselves so it's only right that those causing the traffic problem should be fined and the fine should hurt. That way, the fines will pay for the cost of enforcing the law.
The fines should start at P500 and goes up every week if you don't pay it within 15 days. To enforce this and prevent people from ignoring the fine. It will be tied to their driver's license or car registration. They cannot renew their d…

Revillame scraps ABS-CBN contract

From the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

======================

MANILA, Philippines—Willie Revillame wants out. ABS-CBN says, “No way.”

The controversial TV host Monday said in a press conference that he was rescinding his contract with the network, on account of the shabby treatment it was giving him.

Revillame complained of what he believed were continued violations of the terms of his contract with the Kapamilya station. The TV host is bound by a contract until September 2011 to the Lopez-owned network.

ABS-CBN gave Revillame his biggest break through the daily noontime game show, “Wowowee,” which was recently canceled after more than five years.

In a statement released shortly after Revillame’s press conference in a Quezon City restaurant, the network insisted that it was the TV host who violated “behavioral provisions” of the contract when he threatened management during the May 4 episode of “Wowowee.”

Threat to resign

On that show, Revillame demanded the dismissal of another network talent, radio host Jobert Sucaldito, for criticizing “Wowowee.” Otherwise, Revillame said, he would resign.

The network said this behavior was “generally seen as a display of disrespect and arrogance… unacceptable to the Filipino public.”

“As the one who violated the contract,” the statement noted, “Willie has no right to have it unilaterally invalidated.”

=======================

This guy is the most saddest sack ever. How many times has he been given a chance only to blow it. You would think that for someone who came from humble beginnings to the top of the entertainment industry would have become more mature from all his missteps in the past.

Who else commands a P1 million per episode salary in the industry today? Which entertainer has his own private jet? That's right, nobody but Willie Revillame. But he's not satisfied with that, no, he thinks he's untouchable. But always remember this, no employee is untouchable. In the end, he may make a lot of money, but he's still an employee of ABS-CBN and they have the final say on whether to fire or keep him.

Too bad he's never learned from his mistakes. Money didn't make him smarter, it just magnified his arrogance.
